A selection of scholarship opportunities from Carroll Electric Membership Cooperative (EMC) are available to individuals seeking post-secondary education or training. Eligible candidates may compete for the Walter Harrison, Lineman School and Lerlie & Millard Copeland scholarships.
Graduating high school seniors or undergraduate students could be chosen for one of 14 $1,000 Walter Harrison scholarships. Carroll EMC selects one semi-finalist from its service area to compete at the state level where applications are judged on financial need and academic ability. This scholarship may be used at any two- or four-year university or technical school in Georgia. The deadline to apply is Jan. 31, 2022.
“We’re proud to offer financial assistance where possible and the Walter Harrison Scholarship can help families offset the rising cost of college,” said Rolando Benitez, Member Advocate and Community Relations Representative for Carroll EMC. “To be a good community citizen, we have an obligation to help young people. Scholarships are great avenues to use to reach this audience.”
Full-time students attending the University of West Georgia (UWG) are also eligible for the Lerlie & Millard Copeland Scholarship. Qualifying students who submit a general scholarship application through UWG’s Financial Aid website are automatically considered for the $800 award.
